Random Randomyness Brought To You By Blackberry

I have an app on my Blackberry that loads up a new background image every few hours. It was free and I didn't have anything I specifically wanted to use as my phone's wallpaper, so why not, right?

Famous last words.

This app has been a source of embarrassment and confusion for myself and anyone who looks at my Blackberry. I'll get the occasional sunset or flower or puppy or whatever sort-of-normal image. Every so often they'll be things like sports logos, bands and movie posters that aren't really my thing, but whatever. Truly unexpected stuff would sometimes come on that I'd do a double-take on: A Tickle-Me Elmo with a rather rude thought-bubble (guess what he wanted you to tickle?). A Sears portrait of a totally random Chinese family. A picture of an open, clean diaper. Those were always a surprise.

I thought the worst moments were when I'd get something from a collection I call "Wallpaper Intended For 17-Year Old Boys." Chicks in bikinis. Girls splayed out over cars. Blonds licking lollipops. Because that doesn't send out a mixed message about me when I'm out with friends or anything. I thought that was the worst of it. I thought wrong:

That is Steve Martin at the beach.

LOL! I can understand your mortification, but I think it's kinda fun that you get a new surprise every few hours.

It must scroll through Google Images or something... weird.

Ha - yes. Horrifying, awesome and not to be trusted. But like Jen said, the little surprise is a bizarre bit of fun in my day, which is why I haven't killed the app yet. I'm sure I'll regret that decision.

Oh. My. God. That's actually really awesome. Horrifying in mixed company, yes, but awesome.
